COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Three hunting accidents occurred Saturday, including two in northern Licking County, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

All three of the shootings took place in a 10-mile radius.

The first took place in St. Louisville. The second happened eight miles away in Homer. A third occurred in Knox County when a 13-year-old Utica boy was shot in the leg while he was in a pasture feeding his animals. The boy was struck by a shotgun slug in the left thigh.

Officials said he tried to limp home for help. He was eventually hospitalized and was listed in stable condition.

The St. Louisville hunter was shot in both legs. The hunter in Homer, who was from Johnstown, was hit in the shoulder by a member of his own hunting party, WCMH-TV reported.

All of the injuries were described as non-life-threatening.

Wildlife officials said they have suspects in all three accidents. If the hunters are found negligent, they could face hundreds of dollars in fines and even jail time. They could have their license and hunting equipment taken away, especially if they fired after sunset.
